President Trump doubled down Tuesday on presenting the federal response to the natural disasters in Puerto Rico as an “unappreciated great job.”

The president said the Federal Emergency Management Agency did good work after Puerto Rico was slammed by two major hurricanes in September 2017, despite working on an “inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan.”

Mr. Trump also touted the federal response in Texas and Florida as “A Pluses,” and insisted FEMA is ready for Hurricane Florence.
